Maltagliati

When you make your own pasta, you will always end up with some scraps, even more if you make ravioli. You can easily recycle this leftover pasta to make maltagliati, meaning "poorly cut" in Italian, which was traditionally meant as food for the poor. We are way past that, and today you can enjoy rich texture and amazing flavor of your pasta without the social stigma ;-)

German Zimtsterne (cinnamon almond cookies)

I always wanted to make these, and finally got the guts — oh boy, I wasn't really prepared for the amount of nitty-gritty with making these. I started with original German recipe that called for 500g of almonds, but that ended up being 2 full baking sheets and lots of sneaky snacking between steps ;-) But the result is good, and these cookies are worth the effort.

Cinnamon rolls

This recipe is simply amazing — great right from the oven, delicious the next day and really easy to prepare. You can also upgrade it with nuts, raisins and whatever you like in your rolls.

Simple cookies

Day are shorter now, and the weather is colder as the autumn and winter approach, so it's a good idea to brighten your day with some crispy cookies!

This recipe is really easy and cutting out the cookies is much fun. And of course, then you're left with enormous amount of hot, aromatic cookies that you can share with friends and your close ones.

They are tasty while still hot, but will get better if you leave them on the counter for a day or two, because they will absorb some of the humidity, making them really delicate and delicious!

This French inspired recipe is a wonderful start into an autumn cooking season — sweet, tasty, crispy and soft at the same time. The most important part of this cake make apples, and they are the star. Choose the juicy, soft kind that feels grainy and rubs of when rubbing with fingers, they are usually sold in huge bundles on the cheap.
